Biospecimen Collection & Biobanking Core
The Biospecimen Collection and Biobanking Core – or BC² – merges the IUSCCC Tissue Procurement Core, the Komen Tissue Bank, and the biobanking efforts of both the cancer center’s Clinical Trials Office and those done as a member of the Oncology Research Information Exchange Network (ORIEN).
The core supports cancer research by providing comprehensive biospecimen management, including:
- Annotation (in collaboration with others)
In addition, the following three work groups have been formed, with each headed by the following staff:
- Regulatory and Data, Emily Nelson (email@example.com).
- Sample Acquisition, TBA
- Outreach/Recruitment/Communication, Kathi Ridley-Merriweather (firstname.lastname@example.org).
